MoneyGram Fraud Victims Eligible For Payout

MoneyGram Fraud Victims Eligible For Payout

Posted: Updated:

It’s a great day for those innocent victims of fraud by Moneygram, but fair warning, you have a short time to file a claim to get your money back.

This is for anyone who has lost money from advance fee schemes and similar scams.

Attorney General Luther Strange says his Consumer Protection Section has received complaints from 28 people concerning, in total, about 48 transactions.

According to Strange, MoneyGram, a global money services business, has admitted it aided and abetted wire fraud and it failed to maintain an effective anti-money laundering program. These scams generally targeted the elderly and other vulnerable people. They were disguised as promises of large cash prizes,offering high-ticket items for sale over the internet for deeply discounted prices, promising employment as “secret shoppers” and calling victims posing as a relative claiming they were in trouble and needed the victim to send advance money through MoneyGram.

All claims must be filed through the U.S. Justice Department’s recovery program by November 15th. You can call them at toll-free 1-877-282-2610 or check out the web site at http://gilardi.com/moneygram
